Conference: Eliminating Unnecessary Workload in Primary Schools

The Independent Teacher Workload Review Group recently released three reports detailing how schools can reduce unnecessary workload for their staff. Covering data management, planning and marking, the reports contain best-practice recommendations and guidance for school leaders.

This September in Birmingham (22nd) and Manchester (29th), Rising Stars will be hosting an Eliminating Unnecessary Workload conference where attendees will be able to see how the chairs and members of the three workload reports have implemented the recommendations in their schools, and the impact this has had.
